HEAR Guidance


If you aren't sure on what the HEAR is or who can get it - here is a little more information:

The HEAR is a nationally recognised transcript that demonstrates both your academic and extra-curricular achievements, providing future employers or further study institutions with a comprehensive record of the knowledge, skills and experience gained during your time at University.

This includes: academic work, extra-curricular activities, prizes and employability awards, voluntary work and offices held in student union clubs and societies that have been verified by the University of Leicester and the Students Union.

Who is eligible to receive the HEAR?

Undergraduate students starting their degree from 2011 will receive a HEAR.

The HEAR is not currently available to Postgraduate students and students studying in the following departments:

  • School of Medicine 
  • Distance Learning
  • Education PGCert and PGCE
  • Lifelong Learning

If you fall into one of the groups above - don't worry - you can still record your hours with us as every student in the Students Union who is a committee member, will get a certificate to show they have completed their Student Committee Position in 16.17.

Once you have completed your time at university, you will receive an email that contains a link to your HEAR. It is important to note that you must add all your opportunities before you graduate and in the year in which the opportunity took place as we cannot always add things later!

More information can be found on the University website.
